PROS: Loud and Clear
PROS: Great sounding, Meat Beat Big and Bouncy - a very good performance at the price point
CONS: Grill could be easier to install, Costomer service for a UK customer was not great
PROS: They sound great after a few hours of burn in and look nice once painted and installed.
CONS: They are larger than you might think! It can be difficult to place them where you want because of the size.
I re-purposed these in another room as zone 2 (from the reciever, Denon AVR-1912) and couldnt be happier.
Great speaker, just make sure they'll fit where youre trying to put em!!!
PROS: Sound great, easily compare sound to speakers 10x the price.
CONS: Be aware where you plan to mount these, they are HUGE!
We have an open attic above with blown insulation, so I created a mesh enclosure over the speakers. Four "posts" of wood about 14" high screwed to the rafters then stapled some screen door mesh over them to keep the blown insulation out. Lastly, I rolled pieces of R30 fiberglass insulation (without paper backing) over the boxes. Assume this is helping fill out the sound, but haven't experimented without the insulation yet.
DO NOT use a screw gun to tighten the clamps, you need to be able to feel them engage and they are plastic and deform/break pretty easily.
Also, the switch on the speaker is used to dampen the tweeter in case they are too loud compared to the woofers. You can take off 3 or 6db of volume to try and balance them for your needs.
I love these speakers and if you have the space for the 12" cutouts I highly recommend them.
PROS: Sound is excellent, build is solid, connectors are much improved over my older 8" in-ceiling speakers from monoprice
CONS: Heavy, clamps could be more robust, more clearance for the clamps to accommodate thicker materials would be better, some guidance as to how to position the angled tweeters and mid-range would be nice.
PROS: Good Bass
Clear Voice Reproduction
Great Quality Speakers
Clean and Impressive Appearance
CONS: A little tough to mount speakers in desired locations
PROS: These are great speakers. They need to break in a bit before they start sounding good, and I built boxes for them to enhance the bass (and to keep the sound from getting into the upstairs). Man... You can REALLY crank them up!!! Voice reproduction is great.
CONS: They're a little big, so make sure you have room.
PROS: Great sound, beautiful micro-flange, good price
CONS: Well, the first thing you'll see is the size. How for the love og God are these 6 1/2" speakers. They are 12" speakers, so make sure they' will fit in place before you buy.
Next thing is.... The clamps. My ceiling is plastered with two layers of gypsum board each 3/4" thick. There was no way the clamps could have accomodated. I had to turn them upside down, that got me some clearence.
But since I unscrew the screws and then installed the speakers to make sure they fit, then took them down and finaly tried to install them for the last time, the screws ate up the plastic in the clamps got loose an were not engaging the clamps anymore. Ohhh was that the pain! Literally. It felt like I was lifting 100lb after some time.
Well, it is installed now, so all is good.
